When we heard, we cried a little inside. No more carrot cake at Thanksgiving. No more red velvet at Christmas....

Unless you order now and freeze it for later! If you're a huge fan of VeryVera casseroles and cakes and you just can't live without them, then make sure you order before June 26th! Orders can be placed online at www.veryvera.com .

Vera shows off her signature icing technique for Atlanta planners and writers in 2011.

Vera will be taking at least a year off from her restaurant and catering business to work on a cookbook (which we're sure is going to be fabulous!) and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Fingers crossed that she re-opens a cafe in 2014! Bobby Flay better watch out - because with a year to perfect all of her recipes, Vera may just want to "throw down" again!

If you're in town before June 26th, make sure you stop by Vera's Cafe for lunch!
